Shop

In light of the current world weirdness, I am offering sales options online for my re-energized fiber art: basketry, sewn mats, natural dyed and hand-embellished silk scarves,  notecards, and handmade paper wall pieces. (See below for details on all.) My soft-sculpture Women Warriors, SnipPets© and Strange Angels need to be felt and held and squeezed and fondled…

For all sales I accept:

  • most major credit cards via Square  (email or call and leave a message with  your phone number and the item/s you want – I will respond as quickly as possible and take care of your charge over the phone)
  • personal checks (just let me know what item/s you are wanting and I will put a hold on it/them until the check arrives).

My intention was to post images of representative pieces of my work and let you know the options (e.g. sizes, colorways).
